Friendship, Food, Festivities: A Recipe for Success

There are many ways to become involved in temple life. I started off small almost four years ago when I joined the soup making team for our fundraiser, “We Are All Immigrants.” At this event, we honored temple partners and celebrated both our ancestry and our continuing journey towards Tikkun Olam. That got me hooked, and I joined the Temple Community Celebration Committee.

In May 2019, the committee launched the first “progressive” meal representing “Our Doors Are Open”, starting in the homes of congregants and coming together in our synagogue. It was a great success and so many new friendships were formed.  So, if you want to get your feet wet, test the waters by joining a committee that sparks your interest.
